TASTING NOTE

sparkling wine

Secco 2018

Our rating

8 /10
This orange colored wine has aromas of sweet strawberries, raspberries and a hint of elderflower. The very sweet scent initially puts you on the wrong track, since the wine is dry and the taste is characterized by flavours of rose hips, redcurrants and quinces with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. The taste reminds us of red bush tea. Secco is nice to combine with a fresh salad Niçoise, fried tuna or toast with smoked salmon or mackerel. The price-quality ratio is very good!

Tasting Notes

Wine tasting: 23 Jul 2020
Appearance
A clear, orange colored wine with medium color intensity and petillance in the glass.
Nose
The wine has a clean, youthful nose, with a medium – aroma intensity of flowers, and red fruit. We smell specified aromas of sweet strawberries and raspberries and a hint of elderflower.
Palate
Secco is a dry wine, with medium- acidity, medium- alcohol. It is medium bodied and has a delicate mousse. Flavour intensity is medium with specified flavours of rose hips, redcurrants and quinces with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. The taste reminds us of red bush tea.
Quality Assessment
The Secco is a good wine, it is good to drink now but it will not improve by further ageing. The very sweet scent initially puts you on the wrong track, since the wine is dry and the taste is characterized by red fruit. Secco is nice to combine with a fresh salad Niçoise, fried tuna or toast with smoked salmon or mackerel. The price-quality ratio is very good!
